Peek of the Week - April 15, 2011

Our new Friday feature - the Peek of the Week - is all about you. I want to hear (and share with my readers) what wowed you this week. It could be a cool finished project, a work in progress, a personal accomplishment, a cute kid moment, or something that surprised you.

If we could peek into your week - what would you want to show us?

Each week I'll share my Peek of the Week to get the ball rolling, and invite you to link to your own blog posts about your own Peek of the Week. I know y'all are up to cool stuff - we wanna see it!

Here's my peek:
Remember a while back when I sneak peeked this? Well, it's finally done!
I finally finished the quilt I've been working on for tiny newborn baby Amos (who is now staring down his 20 month birthday).
I found the fabulous tree fabric from IKEA (which is opening in our town in the fall - can't wait!) and I sewed around and stuffed all the trees to make it fun and textured.
And it's soft on the back side. Dizzy likes the soft side.
What a sweet baby in his little homesewn bed.

I know. I should start sewing Lil' Sis' baby quilt now. Maybe it'll be ready in time for her to take it off to college.

Now it's your turn!
How it works:
1. Each Friday I'll post my peek of the week, and give you space to link us up to yours.
2. Blog about your Peek of the Week - whatever it is. Whatever happened that made you proud, laugh, smile, inspired, excited, or just plain happy - now that's worth sharing.
3. Include a link to this blog or put the Peek of the Week button (on the sidebar) in your post.
4. Link your blog post using the InLinkz button below.
5. Visit some of the other linked posts to see what folks are glowing about this week.
Leave them some comment love and expect some to be coming your way.

If you don't get a chance to get here on Friday, feel free to link your post up later.
The InLinkz button will be active for 5 days.


  1. I really want to participate, but all my current works-in-progress are of the dry academic type. (I could link to them, but who would care?!) Nothing as lovely and swishy and soft as that quilt. I think I need to fix that...

  2. Swishy? I think I meant "squishy"-- although I'm guessing that quilt would swish in a pinch. :)

  3. Does this quilt come in larger sizes? Beautiful as always.

  4. I'm with Elizabeth. I should post a draft of my dissertation proposal.
